Tonight, kids from the International School of Basel joined us in the studio.  These were no ordinary students, in that they produce and broadcast a radio program about their school.  The kids told us about the stories they generate and how they get them distributed to their audience.  It was a fun experience all around, and we hope to collaborate with their team on exciting stories from their point of view.
